Bamboo Yamahas

Unread post by RoxRevstar » Tue Dec 06, 2016 3:22 am

I've been flirting the idea of another acoustic but looking for something different.
While looking I discovered Yamaha once made acoustics of bamboo. Has anyone had one of These? Are they worth Owning?

Sorry about the slow response time, but I had to get sound examples on youtube. :wink:

First I thought "bamboo guitars" was a negative nickname ..... totally wrong.
I really didn't know that bamboo is suitable for guitar building, but those I heard sounded pretty good.
On the other hand, IMO the sound wasn't better than so many other guitars.

What am I missing out on here ?

These two Yamaha guitars are supposed to be built from bamboo: :idea: Yamaha FGB1/FGX-B1 :idea:
